The British Book Awards, otherwise know as The Nibbies, are run by The Bookseller each year to highlight and celebrate the best of the book trade in the UK. We’re delighted that this year we have been named Small Press of the Year: Wales, which means we will go head to head with the other eight regional winners for Small Press of the Year 2020. The overall winner will be announced at an award ceremony on 29 June.
The judges commended the creativity and diversity of the nine regional winners, as well as their impact on the market that ‘belies their small size’. Commenting on the Wales winner, the judges said ‘Firefly Press’ focused frontlist of a book a month had a high hit rate, with top sellers including Catherine Fisher’s The Clockwork Crow, and it built momentum in backlist and rights sales’.
